A Farmer as an Agent of Change

In preparation for the growing season In Southern Highlands of Tanzania which is about to start, LEG4DEV PhD researcher Mukoma Kilakila (WUR) has been meeting with legume farmers in several villages during summer 2022 to discuss the potential of new technologies that could increase legume production at low cost and maximize farmers’ investment return. By working with farmers as agents of change, LEG4DEV is focusing its scaling efforts on a range of technologies that include use of inoculants and improved seeds in common beans, groundnuts, and soya. These new legume-based technologies will be tested on farmer’s fields in the season starting in November 2022 and evaluated later by farmers themselves at the end of the season (July 2023).
